23-year-old actress, Emma Watson, recently revealed that she might have a professional Facebook account, but the thought of running her own personal one makes her feel like she's naked and vulnerable.  "It would be like wearing no clothes; stripped bare," Emma told The Daily Mail. "I have a professional Facebook page - but not a personal one."

"I see three-year-olds with iPhones and other gadgets and already they're comparing themselves constantly with others about how many friends, clothes and places they share. It's this super, hyped-up, intense version of childhood, which can't be healthy," the former Harry Potter star exclaimed.

Emma of course also spoke about her latest film projects, Sofia Coppala's The Bling Ring and the hit comedy This Is The End, which features Seth Rogen, James Franco and other comedic actors. Speaking about working on the summer comedy, Emma said, "I laughed solidly for two days."

She related her comedic cameo in This Is The End  to her earlier work as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie franchise, too.

"Hermione was so funny, and such a character. She was completely unaware of how precocious and bossy she was, though eventually the role become more serious," she said. "I really miss making people laugh. I miss her. Hermione really started off as quite an eccentric girl, and the bits I really enjoyed were when she was unaware of herself. She had that hilarious lack of perspective."

In a recent interview where she compared herself to her The Bling Ring character, Emma revealed that she was much different than her role.  

"I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it," she told the United Kingdom's Radio Times.

In her new film, some scenes were shot in Paris Hilton's mansion and featured her actual closets. Watson was blown away by the amount of clothes in there!

"She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on," Watson said of Hilton.  "But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We've all bought things on impulse but that's an entirely different thing," she added. "It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania."
